Garlic mashed potato casserole

This is a do ahead recipe that I haven't been able to top in the last 10 years. I make this throughout the year. There are never any leftovers.

How to Make Garlic mashed potato casserole


  1. Boil the potatoes with the garlic cloves in the water.
    Meanwhile soften the butter and cream cheese in a bowl large enough to add the boiled potatoes to as they finish cooking.Tip:I cover the bowl with a clean kitchen towel to keep the heat in as I add the finished potatoes.
  2. When all the potatoes are cooked (test them with a fork) add them to the bowl on top of the stick of butter and pkg. of cream cheese. Heat the milk in a microwave safe bowl for about 1:20 minutes and add just before blending the whole thing with my hand mixer.
  3. Mix the potatoes,garlic, butter, cream cheese, and milk until of a smooth consistency. Pour into a greased casserole or souffle with pats of butter and bake for 30 minutes at 350. The top will have a slight crust depending on how much butter is added on top.
